2 out of 5 eggsRattles and vibrates, does not perform as well as advertised.

This review is from: Corsair Air Series SP120 120mm PWM High Performance Edition High Static Pressure Fan - Twin Pack (CO-9050014-WW)

Pros: -you can change the color of the rings on the fans

Cons: -Beyond annoying rattle (past the 35 DB advertised) when installed in a horizontal configuration.
-Didn't really push that much more air than stock fans
-Bad design

Other Thoughts: Used these fans as replacements on my Corsair H100i V2 since the stock ones started to rattle so loud you could hear it over teamspeak. Got these installed and was surprised they new out of the box they did the same. I'm not sure if they're defective or just a bad design, but I installed some cougar silent fans that actually more more air and kept my system about 4 degrees cooler. I would not recommend buying these for any case or radiator cooling.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet, Powerful, Aesthetically Pleasing

This review is from: Corsair Air Series SP120 120mm PWM High Performance Edition High Static Pressure Fan - Twin Pack (CO-9050014-WW)

Pros: • Perfect replacement for the stock H100i GTX cooler fans (SP120L’s for reference) (Other Notes: 1)
• Twin pack is convenient.
• Despite reviews- they’re quiet! Even considering Performance mode under load!
• Colored rings suit my case well (Carbide 500r White)

Cons: • Particular about orientation (Other Notes: 2)
• Idle temps hotter, load temps cooler (Other Notes: 3)
• Rubber mounting for screws are good and bad. (Other Notes: 4)

Other Thoughts: These fans replaced the stock options for the H100i GTX AIO cooler. They cool my i5-2500k that is modestly overclocked at 4.0GHz. Ambient temperature is 21°C or 70°F in a small room with horrible airflow. These testing situations happened over the course of a day. It’s worth noting that my Case has a small space between the top mounted radiator and its fans, temperatures in similar situations may vary.

(1) • If you have the H100i GTX and you’re looking for replacement fans, you've found them. The stock options (SP120L) leave a lot to be desired; they are loud and they produce a signature mechanical noise at higher RPMs. These fans sound quieter than the stock’s quietest setting even when they're set at performance mode, no mechanical noise- just solid performance and a dull purr.

(2) • Originally I installed these on a Carbide 500R with the radiator at the top in the designated area and the fans set as a “push exhaust” from the inside. Forums and other literature stated this would be the best performance. My situation didn’t pan out that well, temperatures were abnormally high and at higher RPMsthese produced a new “mechanical noise.” Once I flipped the positions and mounted these fans right-side-up, they performed very well and the “mechanical noise” was gone.

(3) • I noticed that the idle temperatures had actually gone up roughly 4° C, however- load temperatures dropped nearly 6° C compared to the stock options.

(4) • There’s a lot of reviews complaining about the rubber material on these fans. All I can say is that I moved these fans once. During that transition- I did see small grooves carved into the rubber. Additionally, once these are secured you can see the rubber siding warp due to the pressure applied. I know they dampen the sound extensively, however, I can't accurately justify their longevity or their ability move often.

Overall, these fans did exactly what I wanted them to do for a reasonable price. They may not be as quiet or efficient as other high end names- but they fit the bill and the design adds to my computers aesthetic. If you’ve read my points of consideration, found they don't apply- and you're still unsure- don’t be. I can confidently say these were worth their cost.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat when used in the front or back of the case

This review is from: Corsair Air Series SP120 120mm PWM High Performance Edition High Static Pressure Fan - Twin Pack (CO-9050014-WW)

Pros: Lots of airflow, looks great

Cons: When used on my H100i in a push or pull config at the top of my case they made an awful thump when powering on. Also at about 50% speed they would make a buzzing noise. Interestingly enough they were great if I used them as a Case fan at the front or back as the issues would not happen in that configuration.

Other Thoughts: Wish they would have worked without the power on thump noise or the buzzing as they look fantastic on my H100i. I will be returning these and using Noctua NF-F12 PWM fans instead

3 out of 5 eggsReturned

This review is from: Corsair Air Series SP120 120mm PWM High Performance Edition High Static Pressure Fan - Twin Pack (CO-9050014-WW)

Pros: Excellent airflow and PWM control ability.

Cons: One of the two fans in the package developed a churning, ticking kind of bearing noise almost immediately. Returned to Newegg as defective without issue. Replaced with Noctua.

Other Thoughts: Half the price of Noctua, but, only half the fans in the package worked so...

1 out of 5 eggsLook good but make grinding/"grrr" noise

This review is from: Corsair Air Series SP120 120mm PWM High Performance Edition High Static Pressure Fan - Twin Pack (CO-9050014-WW)

Pros: -Deliver high volume of air
-look great

Cons: -When mounted vertical the fan make grinding/"grrr" noise. When the fan are mounted horizontal the fan doesn't make the grinding noise

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this fan because of the grinding noise. It's very annoying. I would RMA it back if I hadn't recycle the box it came in; live and learn >_<

4 out of 5 eggsGood For Radiators

This review is from: Corsair Air Series SP120 120mm PWM High Performance Edition High Static Pressure Fan - Twin Pack (CO-9050014-WW)

Pros: I bought a set of these fans for my 240mm radiator. I'm using a single set of fans, not a push pull configuration. I had hoped that they would reduce temps significantly compared to the set I have been using.

What drew me to these fans to begin with was a review I read stating that these fans outperformed the fans I was using by 30C. Well I knew that would never happen as temps rarely exceed 50C as is. But I was hoping for a 5C drop at least.

I tried connecting these fans via 4 pin and 3 pin fan headers as well as 4 pin Molex to fan power adapters and a fan controller. I prefer the simplicity of a fan controller, being able to turn a knob to select fan speed over software or temperature control.

The first thing that struck me about these fans is how well made they are. These are quality fans with virtually every possible feature you could want in a PC fan.

To install them you're going to need the custom mounting bolts for your radiator. Any decent radiator will come with the required bolts. Using a standard fan screw to tighten them down will work, but you risk damaging the vibration dampening material built around the mounting holes.

Corsair uses vibration dampening rubber around all the mounting points . These are high quality fans. They don't vibrate, buzz or whine. Even at 100% speed for extended periods or when they get hot.

The fan itself is made of a thick semi hard plastic that seems to be able to take quite a bit of abuse without breaking fan blades. I have my fans unprotected by any type of cover. I've accidentally poked my finger into them and have had wires and cables get jammed into them while running full speed and they barely seemed to notice.

On the lowest setting they're very quiet and perform quite well. On the highest setting they're still pretty quiet. Yes, you can hear them spinning, but they're still very quiet on 100%. There is a clear difference between the lowest and the highest RPM, but at no point would I consider these fans to be loud, noisy, irritating or obnoxious. My previous set of fans weren't loud, but they did have a high pitched whining sound to them at max speed. I have read a number of reviews for these fans stating that they're too loud. Well that was my primary concern when purchasing these fans. But in my opinion, even at 100% speed, they're completely tolerable. However, on a lower setting, they can be what I would call silent and still perform admirably.

These fans are truly ideal for pretty much any application that doesn't require hurricane force wind speed. I have owned fans that moved an incredible amount of air and were very loud. However, the amount of air these fans move is impressive, and their high static pressure does seem to make a difference. I can still feel good air flow on the opposite side of my radiator, which is 60mm thick.

These fans come with interchangeable colored rings. Swapping them only takes a few seconds. I'd much sooner have changeable colored rings than being stuck with an LED that doesn't match my color scheme.

Cons: This set doesn't come with any screws or bolts. You would think that they would come with a set of standard length radiator bolts, which is what they require to mount correctly.

These are PWM fans, but if there is a standard 3 pin version of these that's cheaper, I would definitely sooner have those for mounting on a radiator for graphics cards. If you're mounting up to a CPU loop, then I can definitely see the advantage. But as I'm using these for my GPU loop, it's unnecessary. Even if you are using these for a CPU loop, how many mother boards have more than one 4 pin PWM fan header?

The cord is pretty much standard length. I would like it to be longer. Especially since this fan is marketed pretty much exclusively for radiators. Usually radiators larger than 140mm are difficult to mount inside your case unless you have a case designed for water cooling. That's especially true if you have multiple radiators. I have 3 and only one fits inside my case. I've been putting a lot of thought into upgrading my case. But a true upgrade would cost a small fortune. Money better spent elsewhere. To improve my framerate or temperatures.

Other Thoughts: My System Specs:
i7 4790K 4.85 GHz
z97 OC Formula
16 GB DDR3 Trident X 2700 MHz
SLI GTX 980 Classified 1600/8600
1250w PSU
RAID 0 SSDs, RAID 0 HDDs
Blu Ray Burner
CPU 380i Block, Classi 980 Blocks
Dual Pumps, Dual Reservoirs, 2x240mm Rad, 280mm Rad

Based on reviews I had hoped for a decent drop in max temps for my GPUs. But after extensive testing at max fan speed I am getting roughly 2C lower temps on average, compared to the fans I was using previously. Any drop is good as I have been trying to figure out what is keeping temps from dropping. After eliminating the fans from the equation, I believe the pump to be the bottle neck in my GPU loop.

These fan cost a few dollars more than the Sickle Flow fans I have used for years, but as I have discovered, every component in your liquid cooling loop is equally important. A good thermal paste and quality components is the key. Each item will assist in reducing your temperatures. Lower temperatures means higher clock speeds and/or quieter fans.

These are quality fans. They move air well through radiators, they're quiet and the price isn't unreasonable. From this point on, I'm not cheaping out on fans. From my experience, fans tend to last a long time as long as you maintain them. So it's better to buy a quality fan, that will keep your temperatures as low as possible, rather than buy cheap fans and have to replace them or risk overheating components to save a few bucks.

The only reason I gave them 4 Eggs is because they didn't meet my expectations. They're still good fans, just not as good as I had hoped.

5 out of 5 eggsCorsair SP series PWM Static Pressure Fans

This review is from: Corsair Air Series SP120 120mm PWM High Performance Edition High Static Pressure Fan - Twin Pack (CO-9050014-WW)

Pros: -Decent airflow and pressure
-Quiet!
-Rubbler anti-vibration mounting brackets
-Changeable face-plates

Cons: These fans do not have LED lighting, this possibly might be a con for some.

Other Thoughts: I have these babies running in push config on a Corsair H100i GTX and they work flawlessly. They are quiet, have enough static pressure to get the job done, mounted with no problems, and look amazing in black and red with the MSI board I have.
